About this author

It all started in first grade when Cat Johnson won the essay contest at Hawthorne Elementary School and got to ride in the Chief of Police's car in the Memorial Day Parade...and the rest, as they say, is history. As an adult, Cat generally tries to stay out of police cars and is thrilled to be writing for a living. She has been published under a different name in the Young Adult genre, but released her first romance in 2006.

Today, she is a NY Times & USA Today best-selling, award-winning author of contemporary romance and contracted with Kensington and Samhain Publishing. She's also sponsored real live bull riding cowboys.

“When you choose a man who thinks eight seconds is a long time, perhaps you need two of them. Hmm?”
Cat Johnson

“You can not have sex with a guy on a regular basis and not develop deeper feelings for him. It’s impossible. Mother Nature didn’t build women to be able to do things like that. We were designed to be monogamous and hold the family unit together.”
Cat Johnson, Friends With Benefits

“This is the one time in this book this book that I felt Mustang acted like himself. His thoughts were so "Mustang". A frown furrowed Jenna's brow. "Oh, come on. What possible harm could it do?" "Darlin', I couldn't even begin to list all the harm her meeting you could do." He pictured that cozy introduction. Sage, this is Slade and his girlfriend, Jenna. She's the woman we shared for a week in Tulsa. You should read her book. It tells all about it, right down to the old double P. Yeah, right. He might as well add on, Oh, and by the way, that the name of the porno I starred in to.”
Cat Johnson, Bucked

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”

“From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
William Shakespeare, Henry V

“Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die”
Alfred Tennyson

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Hi Rin!!
I'm so glad you enjoyed the stories!! And I'm glad you asked about reading order. I have a Series Reading Order page on my website. I pasted the Studs in Spurs order below... There are actually 2 free reads for the Studs in Spurs series. "8 Second Ride" and also a deleted scene from BUCKED which I named "The Rookie". I would read Bucked first, then the deleted scene, then 8 Second Ride, then the next book RIDE is Chase's story. You can find the 2 shorts individually for free on my BOOKS page, or bundled in a compilation with other shorts called Cat Snips, also free, on my FREE READS page, all at

Studs in Spurs Bull Rider Series, Samhain Publishing

Zany Rin Hey Cat ... Thanks for accepting my friend-vite! Just had to say that I am so glad for the prizes I won from the Erotic Enchants holiday challenge. I loved both books from your Red Series that I won and I have to say that Educating Ansley was just the jump start I needed to dive into your Studs in Spurs series! Speaking of Studs and Spurs where does 8 Second Ride fall into the series time line? I just finished UnRidden and was just about to start Bucked when I saw that there was the 8 Second Ride Bonus and wasn't sure where it fell into the series.
